, lake -- [inaudible] actually it's a wonderful part of america. here we have two chinese immigrant families representing america. it's hard to imagine it in reverse from the chinese side. but then they are not in the great society. >> do they take it as an honor? >> and deep. as ambassador locke mentioned they want to claim him and steve chu as part of the greater chinese community when they start talking about human rights or disagree with him on climate change. but nonetheless it's an amazing moments in american history. >> you went over there just before or just after the big confrontation in august of 2011 over the debt crisis here and there is so much concern whether china would continue to surface our debts and by our investment, treasury bond. i was just wondering, what is the mayor theo up our political system is working and whether our economy, whether we are a worthy partner i guess. >> abuse in the top chinese government leaders as they have great confidence in the economy and know how strong it is. they've made statements to the south american leaders that have gone all
in this country. we're generating jobs that are in america and a proves america's competitive position. -- and it improves america's competitive position. to me that should be a high priority. >> i would like to conclude with a question on your tenure. 26 years in the senate. he made the point that we now -- you made the point that we now have a partisan divide that is pretty vicious. from your experience, what can be done? what can be done and work for them that would correct the bitter partisan divide and allow the two parties to work together in the national interest on a more regular basis? >> one thing that would help is to elect more centrists. second, if the two parties met together in caucuses periodically. right now both sides caucus every week. most of that is focused on partisan advantage. i think it would be enormously useful if there were caucuses focused on the senate because of size where all senators met periodically in a caucus setting without the benefit of the media. i'm sorry. i think as we caucus now behind closed doors, i think a meeting of senators -- republicans
20 years, as many as 60,000 russian orphans found homes in america. but isolated cases of abuse by adoptive parents in the u.s. have caused public outcries in russia. this person was abandoned by his american adoptive mother and sent back to moscow. supporters of the bill say that russia should foster its own. >> if there is any doubt there are not adequate levels of safety for children in the u.s., it is serious grounds for suspension and a ban of adoption. unfortunately, the current position of the authorities in america shows their indifference to the fate of russian children. >> russia's own track record is poor. over 7000 children were adopted by russians in 2011, but more than half were rejected, returned to orphanages in the same time frame. with many child welfare groups in russia critical of the band, some in the kremlin have said the legislation should not be rushed into. a third reading of the bill is expected in the duma friday. ultimately, it will be up to president putin to decide whether it is a step too far. >>> russian police have tried to keep the pros and anti
. the two sons traveled all over the world, including to america, across europe and asia. and ultimately it came to no avail. .. >> it was 20 years after a very bloody partition, and it was a time in government that was a time of great possibility. the country's first constitution was written in 1973. the last land reform you had done were carried out in that period. you had an incredibly progressive government. i just came from england doing a talk there, and it was in the 1970s that marital rape or earlier was considered a crime, but it was something, like, 1984 before the united king dome deemed marital rape a crime. there was a progressive period, not to say it was without fault. certainly, it was made, errors made, grievance ones, in his time. there was the first ever islamic conference, and it was a source of great pride for pakistanis, and they were asked to open up their homes for delegates combing from all over the world, open their home, and make space for them. they had to open their homes because many came uninvited, and there was a substantial entourage that required more sp
america ease its enormous debt. and we're learning how north korea deceived the world, to launch a rocket with the ability to strike the u.s. wolf blitzer is off. i'm candy crowley. you're in "the situation room." >>> on the surface, you might think there's new movement toward avoiding the fiscal cliff that starts making an impact just five days from now. president obama is back in washington and plans to meet with congressional leaders tomorrow. and house members have been told to return to the capital sunday. but there's still no evidence this standoff is anywhere close to being resolved. here's our cnn senior congressional correspondent, dana bash. >> reporter: and candy, you know that even speaks to what is going on here, which is virtually nothing. jessica yellin reported in the last hour that our ted barrett, our senate producer, saw harry reid go into mitch mcconnell's office. well, it turns out that reid walked back out, and told ted barrett that they did not talk about the fiscal cliff at all. that sort of defies logic, but so it goes, that's what he said. and it sort of speaks t
. >>> 7:23. where is the smartest city in north america? one website says san francisco is the second smartest city. san francisco has a lining entrepreneurial economy -- this rhining entrepreneur economy, the report says, but they say it is near colleges and universities. behind san francisco are seattle and vancouver. >>> 7:23. we want to check in with sal. see what's happening on the roads. sal? >> yeah. boston has harvard. >> right. >> let's take a look at what we have. it's cambridge, technically. but you know what i mean. southbound 880, we have slow traffic. we also have slow traffic on the bridges. but not so much on the san mateo bridge as we did yesterday. we want to talk about contra costa county because highway 4 has improved from antioch to pittsburg but slow in bay point. 24 is not that bad. it's crowded, though. and thin 80 westbound in western contra costa county slow in richmond as you drive down to berkeley. if you are driving in san jose, we have slow traffic here coming up from downtown. it's very slow driving up to the 17 interchange and beyond that into cupertino
temperature-wise. in tokyo we're looking at 12 degrees. over towards the americas still things are very messy across much of the southwest. this is due to this winter storm system, and it is going to be a very heavy snowmaker. that will be moving into the four corners. welcoming rain will perhaps be in the phoenix region, but the mountainside will perhaps see about 30 centimeters of snowfall in nevada and new mexico. colorado, you may see more than that, and southern california you'll still see those rain but higher elevations will possibly pack up 5 centimeters of snowfall. across much of the southeast, things are looking very clear and the temperatures are rising here in chicago. that's well above your average. in fact, people in chicago actually broke the record for the longest stretch with no measurable snowfall. you haven't seen snow since rch 4 lt year, so 283 days of no snow. we're wondering when that snow will start there, but freezing rain has impacted paris. it was a slippery day for us out there. still a slippery thing. look at this video. freezing rain creates icy roads yesterday,
to richard at campaign's for america's future that's a progressive political organization. he says it's unlikely that the u.s. will meet the deadline. >> it looks extremely unlikely at this point. they're not returning to the lower house until the day before the deadline. so chances are there won't be a deal before january 1st. but then most of the provisions of this so-calleded fiscal cliff won't have an immediate impact. several will but most will be delayed. so thile still have a chance to work in january. >> how is it going to be delayed? because delay has been something that president obama and the democrats have rejected. >> the tax laws won't have an impact on people until they start paying their taxes in earnest. the effect of that will be very mild, very slight. and some of the spending cuts, the -- the executive branch has 30 days to present its plan for putting these cuts into effect so they may not even take effect. so a number of the -- most economists agree that the impact of the fiscal cliff would be severe if it lasted for a period of time with the assumption that they
